Many fans of the Harvest Moon series will be excited to learn that Marvelous has finally confirmed that Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns will indeed head to North America… and it’ll be here before the first year’s quarter is up. It should arrive on February 28th, so there’s not long to wait.
This latest instalment celebrates the 20th anniversary of the game series (it still counts, despite the name shift!) and you’ll be able to settle “on a homestead in the middle of three distinct and uniquely themed locales.” What can you do there? Well, you’ll get to “explore a diverse landscape” as you discover “new ways to grow [your] farms and friendships.”
Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? But wait, there’s more! You’ll also get to experience Super Mario themed content, just like in the previous game of the series. There will be wearable outfits for your characters instead of customizable crops, so it changes up the fun a little bit.
Each character outfit will have its own special abilities, so check out the list below to see how the action will play out:
- Mario’s Outfit and Hat: Mama mia! The iconic plumber’s signature red and blue uniform gives your running speed a boost.
- Luigi’s Outfit and Hat: Luigi’s costume will improve your luck at fishing. Others will be green with envy.
- Princess Peach’s Dress and Tiara: This regal dress and tiara will make you better friends with other characters. Sweet!
- Toad’s Outfit and Hat: The tireless Toad’s outfit causes your stamina to recharge automatically over time.
If you’re looking to pick this one up, expect to pay $39.99USD (higher in Canada).
